Album Review

Jackyl were always an anachronism in the '90s. Arriving at the peak of grunge, the group — whose members worshiped at the altar of AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, and David Lee Roth — managed a minor hit with the novelty "Lumberjack Song," basically because some listeners found Jesse James Dupree's chainsaw solos kinda neat. Although they managed to eke out a career, it was all downhill from there, with only the second single from the debut, "Down on Me," making much of an impression on the public at large. Between 1992 and 1997, the group released four albums on three different labels, each one receiving less attention than its predecessor. So, 1998 was the perfect time for a hits compilation — their career as hitmakers was essentially over, but "The Lumberjack Song" was still fresh in the minds of Gen-Xers, thereby suggesting that the record might move. Fortunately, Choice Cuts delivers everything anyone could ever want from a Jackyl compilation — "The Lumberjack Song." Seriously, folks, there's more than that — there are all the other highlights from the four albums, plus three new songs including a cover of Grand Funk's timeless anthem "We're an American Band." Those new cuts may not be enough to entice hardcore fans to purchase the collection, but they add some weight to Choice Cuts, helping it become the definitive Jackyl retrospective.

Customer Reviews

Good old fashion rock!!

I am by no means a Jackyl fan, but this cd rocks!!! They are not refined, but if you are considering a Jackyl cd (no matter which one) i'm pretty sure you are not looking for refined. This whole album is full of good heavy percussion and chainsaw style gitar riffs. If you are a fan of AC/DC, then you should like these guys!! The only bad part of buying this cd here is, 1. It's only partial album 2. The main song that is missing is Locked & Loaded (with Brian Johnson from AC/DC) Locked & Loaded rocks and I highly suggest you get the full cd at any cost, it's well worth it.


Formed: 1990 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Boogie rockers Jackyl were instantly lumped into the hair metal category upon their debut in 1992, but their sound was only vaguely reminiscent of the genre. Still, this label stuck with them after the sound became un-hip and their loud rock & roll was largely ignored by the mainstream. But due to the well-rounded Southern rock they were releasing throughout the '90s, they maintained a dedicated following that few other bands from the era could claim. The band started in 1990, forming in Georgia...
